Thread: New Layout!

Started by: PacPac

I think I'm the only one who's had no issues with it yet, I got the white boxes issue once and it's good now.

Also I guess the icons are good for me on my game because I made them to correct size.

Thread: Trying to find new ways to make flagpole glitch RTA viable.

Started by: mav6771mav6771

Most people who run / tas this game know of the flagpole glitch. For a long time and even today this glitch is still not RTA viable (technically).

In late 2015, DoorTK became the first person to come up with a setup, and perform the glitch in real time on emulator. (You can see the highlight here:

After that people stopped testing for the most part. (darbian had done a stream where he tested doortk's method, which was unsuccessful)

I decided to pick up flagpole glitch in February, and came up with a set up that worked consistently. (For the movie file:!GVAnGCzb!5iCjGHOJoZCDF0MH7JrPf3w9D2TWCUb_N1gC4A55uWg)

Then I got that setup on emulator from the sky.

After taking a break for a month I got back to it and got it on Console in real time.

Even though I was attempting to use the same setup. I managed to do the jump inside the block different than what I did in the setup. (Movie file for that:!DQAxgB6Z!exaIrB_KXYXlcrc6_c3Y1Yjw9ZeHLCVLGYx_JgmVbEI)

Easiest inputs for the clip itself I could find.

Update! Savestates have now been successfully created for both powerpak and everdrive!

UPDATE: Sockfolder has successfully found a set up for flagpole glitch that is much easier, if anyone wants to try flagpole glitch, watch this tutorial.

Thread: your opinions on leaderboard rules for SMB1 and SMB2j

I like them. The only issue I have is that I suck at streaming. I'm awful if anyone is watching me. Which sucks because you need to stream for sub 5 attempts. I've had multiple occasions where I get to 8-4 on a sub 5 pace, then when I fail I start streaming. After that it's consistent deaths in 1-2 for an hour and a half or so. If I stop streaming I go back to actually playing decent again.

I guess this can't really be resolved because I'm just nervous all the time and definitely necessary. But I'm still not a fan of it.
